Intravenous infusion of lidocaine starting at the time of surgery for reduction of pain and improvement of recovery after surgery | Cochrane

The most common problems immediately following surgery are pain, nausea and vomiting, excessive blood clotting, slowing or stopping of the movement of food and fluid through the digestive system, and postoperative cognitive dysfunction. Fast-track protocols aim to prevent or reduce these complications and speed up early recovery. Opioid medications that are given to reduce the postoperative pain can be associated with side effects including nausea and constipation, which prevent a smooth recovery. Other options include the administration of epidural opioid medications (injected into the space surrounding the spinal cord). The pain can be a mixture of inflammatory and neuropathic pain or based on increased sensitivity to pain. All are helped by intravenous lidocaine, which is a non-opioid local pain medication or local anaesthetic.

Endoscopic third ventriculostomy for idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus | Cochrane

Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is the fluid which circulates around the brain and spinal cord and through spaces called ventricles within the brain. It protects the brain, supplies nutrients and removes waste products. Normally, its production and reabsorption are tightly controlled. In idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus (iNPH), there is an increase in the volume of CSF for unknown reasons. This causes the ventricles to enlarge and eventually leads to damage to surrounding brain tissue. It usually occurs in older people. Its characteristic symptoms are deterioration in balance and gait, urinary incontinence and cognitive decline. It is one of the less common causes of dementia.

Interventions for the treatment of spinal cord compression due to the spread of cancer | Cochrane

Metastatic extradural spinal cord compression (MESCC) due to cancer from other parts of the body affecting the spine and causing compression of the spinal cord often results in pain, impaired functioning including reduced ability to walk, incontinence, and shortened survival. Radiation is the mainstay of treatment, but surgery, and corticosteroids are also used to treat people with MESCC. This update of a previous review published in 2008 evaluates the clinical trial evidence up to 3 March 2015 to determine how effective radiotherapy, surgery and corticosteroids are in improving functioning and survival, and in reducing pain; and how well tolerated they are in adults with MESCC.

Alternative treatments for Peripheral Neuropathy -

Peripheral Neuropathy is a term used to describe damage to the peripheral nervous system, which is the extensive communication network the brain uses to transmit the body’s information from every part of the body to the brain and the central nervous system via the spinal cord.

Oral nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) for neuropathic pain in adults | Cochrane

Neuropathic pain is pain which comes from damaged nerves, spinal cord, or brain. It is different from pain messages that are carried along healthy nerves from damaged tissue (for example, a fall or cut, or arthritic knee). Neuropathic pain is treated by different medicines to those used for pain from damaged tissue. Medicines that are sometimes used to treat depression or epilepsy can be very effective in some people with neuropathic pain.

Intrathecal baclofen for treating spasticity in children with cerebral palsy | Cochrane

Spasticity, which is an increase in muscle tone, is the most common difficulty with movement seen in children with cerebral palsy. Baclofen is a medication which acts on receptors in the brain and spinal cord to reduce abnormal muscle tone. It has been used as an oral medication for many years. The disadvantages of oral administration are that only a small amount of the medication crosses the blood-brain barrier before it can exert an effect, and that the dose is limited by the unwanted effect of excessive sedation. The administration of baclofen into the fluid surrounding the spinal cord overcomes these problems. This treatment is called intrathecal baclofen therapy and it is administered via a pump placed under the skin connected to a catheter which enters the membranes covering the spinal cord to deliver the baclofen directly into the fluid surrounding the spinal cord and brain.

A Boring guide to Spinal Cord Syndromes - CanadiEM

“Spinal cord syndromes? I love those, and never forget them!” – Said nobody, ever. Despite the fact that spinal cord syndromes can be difficult to remember, they are important to recognize and can yield a significant amount of clinical information. We seek to break spinal cord syndromes into an easy to digest and understand discussion.
